In the spring of 2006, Blain Reinkensmeyer created a free Google Blogspot blog, "Stock Trading 101," as a place to share market news, stock analysis, and education. In 2007, he bought the domain StockTradingToGo.com, installed WordPress, and changed the brand to what was (for a time) StockTradingToGo.
Over the next eight years as a full-time and (thereafter) part-time professional trader, his blog served over three million unique visitors and grew to tens of thousands of email subscribers. Then in 2015, a unique opportunity presented itself and Blain acquired the domain StockTrader.com, moving the site website one final time.
While the site at one point had over 1,000 posts, today, StockTrader.com houses, maintains, and updates Blain's most iconic posts. For example, 10 Great Ways to Learn Stock Trading has been read over five million times and shared thousands of times across social media.
In 2021, Blain transferred ownership of the site to the holding company he and his brother co-founded, Reink Media Group, which owns and operates financial websites including investor.com, StockBrokers.com, and ForexBrokers.com, among others. Alongside acting as a Managing Partner for Reink Media Group, Blain remains actively involved in the day-to-day editorial workflow of StockTrader.com.
StockTrader.com is wholly owned by Reink Media Group, LLC (RMG) a privately held Michigan based company founded in February 2009. RMG's mission is to provide financial education and advice that puts people first before profits. Primary holdings include: investor.com, StockBrokers.com, ForexBrokers.com, and BrokerNotes.co.
